"Here is a text of Twelfth Night with a 'broad view' in more than name. There is, it seems, something for everyone in this edition, from the performer to the prosodist, and the pedant to the pupil. The edition is lavishly supplemented by other texts--some familiar, some surprising. Those appendices allow the reader to trace Twelfth Night's narrative and intellectual affiliations, enabling the reader to track not just the play's debts but its contribution to Renaissance preoccupations with music, friends, gender, and more. The text itself is amply illustrated, coherently lineated, and admirably glossed. In the notes, the reader will discover editors with a nuanced touch for performance. These are seasoned theatrical veterans with a deft ear for verse and a fine eye for staging possibilities. Used in synch with the internet Shakespeare's on-line resources, this edition both takes and offers a broad view of Twelfth Night." -- Paul Menzer, Mary Baldwin College
